60. Somebody loses and somebody wins
That's how elections work. In this case, your choice of candidate is not the one who wins. That doesn't mean your vote doesn't matter any more or less than anybody else's, your choice or your opinion. It only means your side lost. In November, we get to do it again and I hope you will vote Democratic.
